    Abstract : A balanced tear film is essential for a healthy ocular surface. Insufficient tear production may result in dry eye, a common disorder in the elderly population. Dry eye causes significant discomfort in the patients and may lead to visual impairment and ocular infections. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis of Angiographies in Human Healthy Eyes and in Open-angle Glaucoma Retinal Mean Transit Time and Optic Nerve Head Circulation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gunilla Bjärnhall; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi;

    Abstract : Purpose of the studies was to develop a more robust technique to determine retinal mean transit time in healthy and in glaucoma eyes and to evaluate the circulation of the optic nerve head in glaucoma patients.The retinal mean transit time impulse-response method was evaluated in human healthy eyes and normal values and reproducibility were tested.

    Abstract : Two different principles were studied. 1st - statistical analysis techniques were used to obtain medical results from a patient population. 2nd - the patient population was used to study the statistical analysis techniques. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on Retinal Circulation in Experimental Animals, Healthy Human Eyes and Eyes with Diabetic Retinopathy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lidija Tomić; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Retinal Circulation; Labelled Microsphere Technique; Monkeys; Blue Field Simulation; Macular Leukocyte Velocity; Fluorescein Angiogram; Mean Transit Time; Impulse-Response Technique; Arterio-Venous Passage Time; Vessel Diameter; Oxygen; Carbin Dioxide; Diabetes Retinopathy; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi;

    Abstract : The retina is a highly metabolically active tissue with large demands on the supply of nutrients. Disorders affecting the retina often include some vasculopathy with an impact on retinal circulation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Short- and Long-Term Follow-Up of Ophthalmological Findings in Preterm Infants and Children

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Larsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; prematurity; follow-up; retinopathy of prematurity; ROP; infants; children; incidence; screening; refraction; visual acuity; visual fields; Oftalmiatrik; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi;

    Abstract : In a prospective population-based study in Stockholm County, 1998-2000, the incidence of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) was investigated and was found to be 36% in prematurely-born infants with a birth weight of ≤ 1500 grams. Compared to a study performed ten years ago, the overall incidence was unchanged, but was reduced in “mature” infants and increased in immature ones. READ MORE
